shows up at spring practice in the high 180s and then fall practice at 190? 6'2 190 is plenty of size. Just asking. Folks act like he will always be 175lbs but he has gained 20lbs in 10 months since he got properly diagnosed.

He will compete for the starting job at 6'2 190
If he's the best QB then play him. Not a profound statement but if that's what the staff thinks and that's how it looks in Spring and early games then play him.
Three W's In My Life: Ward, Weinke, and Winston
He won't win it. Too much athleticism with Coker and Winston.
"I never knew I had a foot until I noticed it was on your neck"
People fuss about EJ, but we will be worse with Clint. Tonight our offense line is protecting EJ and he is performing great but when he doesnt get time he folds. Clint will be even worse because he is one dimensional. If he wins the job, then he wins the job, but I pray Jimbo isnt doing this to make Rick feel better. Jimbo said CLint is the starter going into spring so Im a little concerned.
Doesn't mean he's the starter come fall.
Guy cant run. Might be the deciding factor. Just hope the best QB wins.
LOL!!! You can't be serious, dude will never be 190, even soaking wet. And exactly how does that make him a better dual threat. With this OL, need a dual threat qb
I'd rather have a non mobile guy that can make all the reads pre and post snap. Trickett is accurate and has a cannon. Our OL should be good enough to not need a scrambling qb
FSU -->----->> The Unconquered Uprising
He will always be at 175. He has been there for 3 years.
No, he came in at about 155, and as recently as a year ago weighed less than 165
190-what? Damn sure aint pounds. Kid would win 4 national titles at Valdosta St. but is too small to start here. Helluva #2, but that's it.
If Ken Dorsey could hack it, so can Trickett. He has always been thin and never relied on scrambling to complete passes. Thus his pre snap reads get him by and IMO he is noticeably better at it than EJ. His throws always seem to come out quicker to his WRs. Vick is sacked more than any QB in the league and he's as mobile as they come.
Sorry, but I want Coker to be the next FSU QB. Dude has fire in him.
Winston is the future.
Look at it this way, we need Clint to start. Daddy Trickett is going to do his best not to get his kid killed, so he will do everything in his power to improve pass blocking and reads. It's preservation of the family, not just simply coaching!
Wrong TNole27. He was a biscuit over 160 last year. 178 range this year. He had a real condition they finally figured out.
Why is is so hard to believe that a 6'2 individual will one day weigh 190 pounds? It's now understood why he couldn't put on weight and he's in a BCS strength program.
But is the future now? The best man needs to win. If Winston isn't ready, he shouldn't start.
I'd like to see Winston start. These days r-freshmen are playing and winning. You don't have to be a 4th year junior to be good.
If Winston starts next year, we know he's the real deal. If he doesn't start, then either Trickett/Coker is just better or Winston is over-rated.
Winston should start if he shows 5 star talent in every way (leadership, work ethic, playbook, etc). To me experience doesn't mean much these days. Other schools are proving that to be true.
Scalp 'Em Seminoles!!!
Your right RS freshman are starting and winning in other systems, not sure that applies to Jimbo's system.
All things being equal i would love to throw the reigns to Coker or Winston! See what the young pups have
Based on who Jimbo has put in when he pulled EJ out the majority of the time I think that he expects Trickett to be our starting QB next year- weighing more or not. I guess we will all have to wait to see if Coker or Winston can change his mind during the spring. Personally I do not care who is out there.....Fisher has repeatedly demonstrated that he will field the best player regardless of age or experience.
One thing to follow is whether we incorporate 2 QBs. Fisher did it with Randall and Russell.
I seriously hope not. I am not a fan of using two QBs.
I was thinking of it more from a runner/passer situation. Somewhat like Tebow and Leak. One was a pure passer and one was a runner. It's a way of incorporating the running game we lost with EJ.
